[WebGl][Tilemap] Tilemap.SetTile does not set the tile on WebGl build



Steps to reproduce:
1. Open user attached project
2. Play the scene notice that the tile generated by code appears
3. Make a WebGL build and run it
4. Notice that the tile generated by code does not appear

Expected result: setting tiles through code should work on WebGL builds

Reproduced in: 2018.1.0a3, 2017.3.0b8, 2017.2.0p1, 2017.2.0b1

Does not reproduce on Windows & OSX
Tested in: Chrome 61.0, Firefox 56.0

    I can confirm this issue also appears on 2017.3.f3. The tile doesn't just "not appear". SetTIle throws an error. NullReferenceException: A null (value was found where an object instance was required.)
    My stack trace shows that it breaks within SetTile -> InvokeRefreshTile -> UpdateTileAsset

    It is a critical error for me because now I have to replace the entire tilesystem while the deadline for my game is just around the corner. If you mentioned this problem in the Release notes I wouldn't have wasted so much time and went with some other tile system implementation.

    Yes, we are having the same issue on iOS. The tile is visible in the Unity Editor but it does NOT show up on the phone. We are running Unity 2017.3.0f3. I wonder if we should submit a new issue for iOS specifically since this issue is tagged for WebGL?

    Does anyone know a workaround for this? Severity 3 supposedly means a workaround is possible but I can't find one.

    This is also happening on iOS builds for me. Is it the same issue?

    I can confirm that it reproduces on MacOS (High Sierra).

    The same thing is happening to me. It's a critical bug because it makes the tilemap unusable in WebGL.
